Tonight one of my boys made a great play in flag football. His coach gave him the play and I heard people I didn’t even know cheering my son on. I could barely see what he did from my vantage point, but I knew it was good!
That’s the goal of parenting–not that I continue coaching or even cheering for my kids–but that I send them onto the field.
I was the one who made sure he was dressed to play. I give him the opportunity to practice, too. But in the end, he is playing the game and I’m on the sidelines. As Wonder Women, let’s dress our Incredible Kids, give them lots of opportunity to practice greatness, and then let’s pray that the Super Power would bring the right coaches and cheerleaders alongside our kids that will have them winning in the game of life.
